This area offers a great view of mountains and plain meadows. Living in a busy crowded city such as Chicago usually does not offer such a great opportunity to just look beyond the horizon and to soak in unaltered nature.

I recommend you to drive through this area on the way to Reno or Carson City or from places uo north to South Tahoe. The landscape is awesome.

Skiing, snow, lifts, the whole package. Enjoyed the day on the slopes. Nice restaurants, warming lodge. Friendly employees and groomed slopes. As I said, the whole package.

Skied for four hours on Sunday 23 April,2017. Great consolidated snow. groomer skiing only, but well groomed and fast. The runs are fast and smooth, especially before noon and the sun softens them up to much. Staff was friendly and in good spirits.

Had a good day of skiing with two friends. Snow stayed good until 2 p.m. then got slushy. Will have to say that they were unprepared for Easter break, the food options were slim and not very appetizing. There was also only 1 cashier working...More

They're getting lots of snow right now. So much I can't get there because I don't have a 4x4 vehicle! The last few years have been horrible and March was bad. This season is looking awesome so far. Based on that I'd say that... More
